It has been brought to our attention that an instagram / whatsapp message is currently doing the rounds, saying that “case in Bloemfontein High Court to keep Christianity in schools is concluded today. Christians have won the case. Glory to God.” The message is misinformed and incorrect.

There is no outcome as of yet in the OGOD vs 6 public schools case, which took place in the Johannesburg (not Bloemfontein) High Court last week. As previously reported (see, judgment has been reserved and it will probably take some time before there is an outcome.

Rest assured that we will advise of the outcome as soon as there is any news. In the meanwhile, we continue to pray! For updates on this and other religious freedom matters, follow FOR SA on our website at and our Facebook page at “Freedom of Religion SA”.
